The Lure of Antiquity and the Cult of the Machine : The Kunstkammer and the Evolution of Nature, Art and Technology, Paperback / softback Book

The Lure of Antiquity and the Cult of the Machine : The Kunstkammer and the Evolution of Nature, Art and Technology Paperback / softback

Description

The Kunstkammer was a programmatic display of art and oddities amassed by wealthy Europeans during the sixteenth to the eighteenth centuries.

These nascent museums reflected the ambitions of such thinkers as Descartes, Locke, and Kepler to unite the forces of nature with art and technology.

Bredekamp advances a radical view that the baroque Kunstkammer is also the nucleus of modern cyberspace.
